men in suits, BONOBOS

What is it about a man in a suit?  Now don't get me wrong, men in jeans (non-skinny of course because men do NOT where jeggings) men in board shorts, men in t-shirts,
men in flannel shirts, men in beards, oh, sorry, where was I? 
Oh yes, men in suits, aaaaaaah. 

When a man dons a suit for a non-work related reason, they are like superheros.  Not a superhero defending the world, but a superhero defending style, to us gals at least.  We have become so accustomed to "casual dressing" for everything, that a suit is generally the sign of something serious going down...hey, I live in Colorado.  So let's try this, a suit should be worn for a special occasion such as a wedding, a dinner party or how about a date with your lady, trust me on this, guy + suit = superhero.  Does Bruce Wayne ring a bell?
 
Maybe men don't where suits because they haven't found the right one?  Well I can help with that.  Not me personally, but Bonobos can.

Bonobos men's apparel, was started as an online retailer in 2007. Thanks to some prominent accolades such as "Best Men's Pants" and "One of America's Hottest Brands", Bonobos expanded to land in 2011 with Guideshops. Bonobos Guideshops are essentially a "dressing room" where men receive personalized service while seeing, feeling and trying before purchasing online. In 2012, Bonobos partnered with Nordy's, for those who prefer instant gratification.

I love the fit of these suits!  The pants are slim, not ballet tight, but slim with a nice break at the cuff.  The jackets fit just right, not too loose, not too tight, juuuuust right.

The dark suit featured is The Foundation Slim-Cotton Linen Navy Ticking Stripe and the light is The Foundation Cotton-Linen-Light Grey. 


The perfect summer suit, cotton-linen in light grey.  This suit paired with a light shirt, even a pattern, for day and for night, go for a sexy contrast, like a dark midnight blue or a jewel toned green.

If these pics weren't convincing enough for a man to sport a suit, I have also included a few of my fave retro men for added inspiration...





The Ferrari aint' bad either!


 The slimmest, best fitting double breasted suit I have ever seen.

Not the best suit shot, but it is Mr. Newman, no wait, Mr. Newman with a beard...
more on beards later.

love it, live it: item inspired boho glam bedroom

 
 
This zebra headboard is stunning!  I am not one for elaborate bedding, I prefer solids, so a simple white linen blanket and linen shams is really all one needs to "make this bed".  Clean lines, a little bling, a mix of textures and patterns, voila, Boho Glam.
